Guitarist Christone “Kingfish” Ingram has previously collaborated with legendary acts like Buddy Guy and Tedeschi Trucks Band. Today, he has shared his first-ever solo single, a rocking blues number called “Outside of this Town.”

As Kingfish told, the autobiographical song was inspired by his own experiences in his hometown of Clarksdale, Mississippi. “There’s not a lot to do here,” he said. “Some people maybe get tempted by the criminal life, but for me it was blues 24/7. I want to be a great man, and bring great music all around the world, because that’s what we need at this moment.”
